Top Cow Productions created “Pilot Season” to let readers vote on five brand new comic book concepts. The winning titles get the green light for publication.
At a New York Comic Con panel, publisher Filip Sablik outlined the program. Last year’s “Pilot Season” winners were Twilight Guardian and Genius. This year’s titles included: 39 Minutes, @sset, Forever, Crosshair, and 7 Days in Hell. Three out of five titles have been optioned for film adaptations.
The panel highlighted the Top Cow publication, Rest. The comic explores the consequences of a drug that allows people to stop sleeping. Actor Milo Ventimiglia acts as “editor/producer” for Rest and encouraged panel attendees to really show their support for independent comic book publishers.
